Lilliput Melon (F1 Hybrid 80 Days)

A mini, personal size melon just the right size for one serving. Luscious, sweet orange flesh has a high sugar content and is easy to harvest, it just slips from the stem when fully ripe. The fruit weighs up to 2 pounds and is 4-5 inches in diameter. High resistance to powdery mildew and fusarium wilt.      

20 seeds



Cucumis melo

Germination: 4-10 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2" deep

Sowing Indoors: 3-4 weeks before the last frost. Provide 70-85ºF soil temperature. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Transplant after last frost, 36" apart.

Sowing Outdoors:  Sow after the last frost when the soil temperature is over 70ºF. Sow 2-3 seeds every 36", thin to the strongest seedling. 

How much does a packet plant: 18-20 foot single row, 5-6 hills

Harvest: Look for the following signs as it does take some practice on telling when they are ready to harvest. The skin tone changes and netting becomes heavy, the ends soften, they will slip from the vines or a gentle tug will pull it away from the vine, a crack develops around the stem, the closet tendril to the stem dries, and the aroma increases when ripe.

Tips:  Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost or well-rotted manure, and keep well watered. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth.

various vegetables

Good always good to find a new vendor especially in 2020. Purchased 16 types of vegetable seeds. Most are growing very well in eastern Tennessee. Some were new to me like Fenugreek and Black runner beans. Enjoying red bean flowers which turn a bright orange after opening . Only disappointment was the germination rate of the Lemon grass. Three separate sowings yielded 50% rate. I have grown this grass for three years and this is the lowest rate. I look forward to reporting the harvest results for the other vegetables!
